How many turnovers were a direct cause of Goldson in the last two years? Seemed like he was good for 3 ball jarring hits a year at the minimum and a few INT's. I think we will miss that part this year. Ried appears to be a safer cover guy but let's see if he can force some turnovers.
True. He also led the league in unnecessary roughness penalties. As we all know, several of them extended drives that hurt us. Not saying that evened it all out but it did take away from the impact of his strengths.
Personally, I think the fact he played on a winning team and made a bunch of highlight hits gave him a higher ranking than he deserved. Pro Bowl? Probably. All Pro? No way.
